Hey loves, remember when Beyoncé arrived at the Met Gala? I sat glued to the E! channel wishing I could go visit this exhibit. At the time I was living in Ohio and it didn’t seem feasible. But sometimes if you click your heels hard enough wishes do come true!
Long story short I’m now living in the fashion capital of the world New York and the exhibit has been extended through September 5. Needless to say I went to the Met within days of arriving in New York. Let me tell you this exhibit was everything and more than I expected.
Now for those not familiar, this years theme is Man vs Machine. It explores the relationship between handmade and machine made haute couture and avant-garde wear. The gallery had over 120 pieces and I swooned and gushed over all of them. Designs from Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld and many more were displayed and I tried my best to capture their beauty, unfortunately my photos don’t do them justice (must see in person).
I tip my hat off to Andrew Bolton, the curator of this magnificent gallery. If you’re a true fashion lover and are heading to NY within the next few days I suggest you visit (as all goods things must come to an end, last day of exhibit is Sept 5th).
